Crazily-discounted Pia Wallen Cross blanket!


This has to be a FAST post because I’m running out the door, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up that the FULL SIZE (63×95″), large Pia Wallen Cross blanket (with which you know I’m obsessed) is currently reduced to $99 at Urban Outfitters. That’s a MASSIVE reduction!!

FYI: This is the felted cotton version of the Cross blanket (the same one I have on my bed), not the wool Crux blanket that costs a million dollars and is never in stock. I love my Cross blanket, though—rest assured it’s excellent quality.

I didn’t even realize they stocked the large blanket until D16 reader Esra (THANK YOU, ESRA!!) emailed me this afternoon. I knew they’d been stocking the smaller crib-sized Cross blanket (31×49″) for a while, but it seems you can only get to the large-size blanket by Googling or with a direct link. CRAZY.

ALSO: Apparently Urban Outfitters is offering free shipping today, AND the code “FALL2014” will generate a 10% discount. Bananas. I wasn’t able to get the discount code to work with PayPal, FYI, so I had to do a regular transaction and enter the code at the very end.

OK, go get yourself a blanket!! (Hopefully this isn’t some big mistake on Urban Outfitters’ part, haha.)

UPDATE: The blanket is sold out already. Sorry, guys. 🙁

NOTE: The in-stock Cross blanket that’s still listed on the Urban Outfitters site for $99 is NOT the full-size! That’s the crib/throw version, and it’s only (31×49″). CHECK THE LISTING DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY BEFORE ORDERING. The full-size (63×95″) blanket has been out of stock since September 15th.

      Janet, thank you! I was afraid to go any further with the transaction once I wound up at paypal without having entered the code. Good to know it’ll take you back to the site!! Thanks!!!

    Waah! They won’t shop to Australia (or they have already sold out). Thanks for sharing though!

  • Reply Jennifer September 15, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    waaahhh…went out of stock as I was checking out. In my cart…such a sad, sad story! :X

  • Reply Katherine September 15, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I just tried ordering it and it lets me get all the way through the payment process and then says they are out of stock…I guess they went pretty quickly. Thanks for the alert though. 🙂

    Sold out 🙁

  • Reply Gillianne September 15, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    Yup, sold out. 🙁 But thanks for thinking of us, and at least some of your readers seem to have gotten this amazing deal.

  • Reply daniela September 15, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    Thank you for this post! I have been eyeing this blanket for years! I just ordered mine and the promo code worked. Thanks again!

  • Reply Ana September 15, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    Ugh please don’t give that company any business please. Didn’t you see their Kent State sweatshirt complete with blood stains make the news today?

    • Anna @ D16 September 15, 2014 at 8:41 pm

      I haven’t seen that particular thing, but I know they do a lot of crappy stuff. Frustratingly, for every move UO makes in a positive direction (like bringing Pia Wallen’s blankets to a US market instead of making a knockoff version), they seem to do another stupid thing. Hopefully they’re moving toward being a more ethical company, though—I have a lot of friends who have worked out deals with UO for selling their handmade goods, which is something I never thought I’d see. It may be naive, but I try to support the positive efforts they’ve made in hope of encouraging them to move away from the ethical mishaps.

    • Ana September 15, 2014 at 8:46 pm

      I hear what you’re saying. I’ve just seen them knock off more designers than support. It always bums me out when I see people I respect (like you) encourage people to shop there. It’s a real dirty company and today’s uproar was par for the course for them.

    • Anna @ D16 September 15, 2014 at 9:03 pm

      I totally get what you’re saying, and your point is totally valid. I can’t even offer a counter, other than to admit that I’ve become very worn down over the last few years who it comes to battling (not the right word, but you know what I mean) companies like these. A jewelery-making friend of mine who is sold her work to UO put it this way: “If they don’t get my designs from me, they’re going to get them somewhere else.” She’d rather make money off of her work than have it copied, and I get that. I get both sides of it, and it’s hard to know what the right thing to do is.

    • Ana September 15, 2014 at 9:50 pm

      You’re right, sometimes shopping is like walking among landmines. So many companies will play dirty and your friend is right, they would just take her designs and not stop until enough uproar made them. So good for her for getting money from them.

      Hopefully another company will carry this blanket in the states (which ironically UO did knock off the blanket in the form of a rug).

  • Reply Susan September 15, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    Maybe they re-stocked? I just got one. Didn’t use the further discount code (clicked through before I finished reading the post) but the sale went through and I received a confirmation email. Maybe it’s still worth trying?
    Thanks for the tip Anna. It’ll be 8 months before I can think of using it here (Australia) again….

    • Anna @ D16 September 15, 2014 at 10:15 pm

      Susan, are you sure you ordered the large size (63×95″) blanket? Be careful—the crib-size one (31×49″) is still in stock (and also $99), but large one has been sold out for hours.

    • Heather September 17, 2014 at 11:27 pm

      oh crap – i just totally fell for that crib sized / throw option. Those bastards even say ‘one size’. Well, I guess my 2 year old now officially has cooler clothes AND cooler bedding than I do!

    • Anna @ D16 September 18, 2014 at 12:05 am

      Heather, believe me, I almost made the same mistake!!

  • Reply atee September 17, 2014 at 9:53 am

    I was able to purchase at 9:45AM EST on Sept 17, 2014 using the discount code! Thank you Anna for the information, I can’t wait for it to come!!!

  • Reply Noor September 17, 2014 at 10:52 am

    Ahh, I would have loved to have this last year when it was in style, but it was sold out.

    • Anna @ D16 September 17, 2014 at 11:48 am

      You liked it last year but you don’t like it this year?

  • Reply Tanea September 17, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    This is so cute! Too bad it’s sold out 🙂

  • Reply Caroline September 19, 2014 at 8:18 am

    I was able to place an order for the gray one this morning (I already had the black). It did say on the front page that it was sold out though. So I won’t be surprised if the order doesn’t get filled. Doesn’t hurt to try! Thanks for sharing this info either way!

    • Anna @ D16 September 19, 2014 at 11:28 am

      Caroline, I think you may have accidentally ordered the small size blanket. The one that shows up in the related items is NOT the full-size.

    • Caroline September 20, 2014 at 6:54 pm

      Hmmm…. could be. I can’t tell from the email confirmation. It says “one size”? Oh well, worst case scenario I have a kitty-sized one. : )

  • Reply SLK September 22, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    Just received an email that my order was cancelled. Did you receive the same? 🙁

  • Reply slk September 22, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Hi, there. I purchased the large size blanket and just receive an email that the order was cancelled:

    “Unfortunately, the item(s) listed below are not available for shipment and have been cancelled. You have not been charged for any cancelled merchandise. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

    Did you or anyone else receive the same message? 🙁

    • Anna @ D16 September 22, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      Hi slk, mine is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, so hopefully it’ll arrive! My friend Fiona commented on Twitter today that hers was delivered (and is the correct/large size), so I’m guessing there was a rush of ordered and their stock count updates weren’t fast enough. I’ve had that happen before when ordering during UO sales.

      Sorry about that. 🙁

  • Reply Charlotte September 26, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    Oh man, love this! Though kinda glad its sold out, or I would have been too tempted!
